Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Re: Yamaha original Maple Custom kit - Is it worth it??

What were your Canwood drums like? Number of pieces, sizes, and so on.
No - I hadn't heard of them, so I went to the site.
No prices listed, and I don't see them for sale at any of the usual...

Re: AK Snare Drums?

The engraved ones are a bit 'flowery', but I'd really like to try that one ^^^^.

Looks good, and those snares look like they'd really do the job.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Very nice looking drums. I think the more natural finishes are just fine.

The hardware on your other lines is really unique, and makes the unmistakable statement that 'these are Guru drums',...

Re: Walnut, Birch, Heads, Tuning, Sound

I think I've got question #1 answered. Yes, walnut has a typical sound.
I hadn't heard it before.

EDIT: part of it must be the sizes also.
Here's the same person playing the same type of...

Walnut, Birch, Heads, Tuning, Sound

Not sure what section of the forum to put this in, but I have some questions about some short audio clips I ran across recently.

1 - is this sound typical of walnut?

2 - would it be possible to...

Re: First time in EIGHT years.. I have drums set up at my place.

Being able to play your acoustic drums is one of the many things that make the hassle of owning a house worth it.

Enjoy it - quick - before something breaks down - LOL

Re: Just in case you forgot

I'd really like to see that pattern on a black background.

Same blue/green, but all the white parts black. I think it'd look great.

Re: Standard DW9000 and heel-toe

Depends how you do heel/toe, I guess.

When I do it, my heel never contacts the heel plate.
The first strike is with my heel on the board ahead of the hinge.
The second strike is catching the...

Re: Member leading other members on in a series of misleading questions in threads.

The ad just says 'sold' now.
Just out of curiosity, did you happen to see how much those rare Japanese Stage Customs sold for?

Re: Help With Yamaha Drum Part

Here 'ya go. Don't know if you can tell from the pic, but the older long arm is about 5" and the newer short about 2 and 3/4". Probably no way you'd mix them up.

Re: Snare under $200

Your parameters are under $200, new, wood, 13 or 14".

No mention of if you've got a drum set, or if you have a snare that you're using now for comparison purposes

Not a lot to choose from in...

Re: Just in case you forgot

2013 - OMG, those must be all old and worn out by now. LOL

Don't you dare sell them just to get attention with a new kit - ha ha.

Re: Yamaha Drums

They're both 14's, but the maple tunes low enough that the birch fits nicely in pitch between the 12 on the bass and the 14 on the floor.

Doesn't seem logical on the pitch to size thing, but I...

Judging from the picture, that's a mighty fine looking drum set.

I went on Yamaha's site, and I'm pretty sure the finish on the tom I got is called ' Honey Yellow '.

Re: Cleaning a Ludwig LM400

If it's new, I'd give it a good coating of wax to help protect it from moisture.

Don't use chrome polish on it. That contains an abrasive. I use polish when I buy something used to clean it...
